by three points. and in wisconsin, the polling average has mr. obama ahead by more, by five points. then at 10:00 eastern time, polls will be closed in all of those states and we'll be closing polls in the 10:00 eastern time in that hour in the states that you see blinking right here. these four states. of those four states, iowa, montana, nevada, and utah, two of them are going to be watched really closely. those, of course, are iowa and nevada. the "real clear politics" polling average in iowa right now shows president obama ahead by two and in nevada president obama ahead by 2.7. then later in the night at 11:00 p.m. and then 1:00 a.m., we'll have california, hawaii, idaho, oregon, washington, and then the last poll closing in alaska. unless this is a very strange night, those races will be interesting for governors races and senate and house races and state issues, but not necessarily for the presidency. unless things go very, very differently than expected to go. this is how your election viewing is going to unfold hour by hour on tuesday night. if you just exclude the states
, the president returned to the campaign trail today. with the election around the corner, mr. obama received a surprise endorsement. with the devastation of the megastorm consuming his attention, new york city mayor michael bloomberg surprised the political world today by endorsing president obama for re-election. in a statement, bloomberg said the hurricane's cost "in lost lives, lost homes and lost business brought the stakes of tuesday's presidential election into sharp relief." he credited mr. obama with taking major steps to reduce carbon consumption and noted not only president obama's position on climate change, but also on a woman's right to choose and marriage equality as evidence of a vision different from that of mitt romney. the news came as the president returned to the campaign trail, stopping first in green bay, wisconsin. he revived his own slogan of 2008 to question mitt romney's ideas. >> governor romney has been using all his talents as a salesman to dress up these very same policies that failed our country so badly, the very same policies we've been cleaning up after for
nationwide. mr. obama's campaign has been able to reach about 11% of the electorate and mr. romney about 10%. virtually identical. and when you look at the battleground states, it's mr. romney who has been able it reach voters about 14% of them and mr. obama just a little bit shy of that, 13. virtually identical. the polls are virtually tied in the battleground states and nationally and the get-out-the-vote race seems to be as well. shep? >> shepard: carl cameron on the campaign trail tonight. we are getting a brand new picture of our economy in several new reports just days before the election. some clarity and details next. and the former president of penn state university now faces new charges in the child rape scandal. from the journalists of fox news, this is a thursday fox report.

. >> brown: in turn, mr. obama accused his opponent of trying to scare voters over their economic futures. he pointed to a romney ad running in ohio that charges jeep is shipping jobs to china. >> you've got folks who work at the jeep plant who've been calling their employers worried, asking, "is it true? are our jobs being shipped to china?" and the reason they've been making these calls is that governor romney's been running an ad that says so. except it's not true. >> brown: chrysler has said it has no plans to move the jobs. the romney campaign insists it's standing by its claim. there promised to be much more battling over economic policy, with the race in a dead heat and going down to the wire. we look now at the jobs picture with two economists with ties to the presidential candidates: john taylor of stanford university and the hoover institution. he advises the romney campaign on economic issues. and austan goolsbee of the university of chicago's booth school of business. he served as president obama's chairman of the council of economic advisers until last year. to the extent mob set

there have been seven polls. all of them have suggested that mr. obama is up within the margin of error by a couple of points on mitt romney. most scenarios, romney can't win without winning here in florida as well as without ohio. so, one of the schools of thought is that the romney camp is trying to hedge against a possible defeat in ohio by expanding the battlefield or trying to into those three blue states. the obama campaign isn't buying it. as we head into the final six days it's very clear it's going to go right down to the wire with anybody's guess in some of the battleground states in the quest for 270 electoral votes. national polls s. tied as is some of those battleground states even with the margin of error. shep? >> shepard: carl cammeron in jacksonville florida tonight. little relief for air travelers coming in and out of the nation's airspace after sandy. earlier today two of new york's airports reopened on a limited basis. jfk and newark liberty international across the river in jersey. port authority which runs all the airports is urging folks to call airlines for infor

crisis. and mr. obama heads to the all important state of ohio later today. and for his part, mitt romney was in virginia at several campaign stops. he criticized the president for not doing enough to help businesses. also romney said the nation needs a president who understands business better. romney's aides are conceding that the storm's slowed some of his momentum, but they insist their internal polls show him ahead in some of those toss-up states. romney visits wisconsin and also ohio today. >>> and from the lighter side of politics, vice president biden went on david letterman's show last night to read his top ten list. >> ah, joe. the subject, the top ten reasons to vote early. here's some of the highlights. >> if you vote early, you don't have to pay taxes. i'm sorry. i'm being told that's not accurate. >> that's not accurate. number two. >> early voters receive a $5 million donation from donald trump. >> wow! and the number one good thing about voting early, ladies and gentlemen -- >> honestly, don't you want this election over with already? >> yes, we do! >> i think we all do, j
to where it was when mr. obama took office as president. in january of 2009, it was 7. %. there was a stimulus in february 2009. hundreds of billions of dollars spent into the economy, the unemployment rate kept rising to 10% before moving slowly lower now to 7.8%. again the forecast is for it to pick up in october to 7.9%. let's take a look at the job creation trends. that's the other part of this story. you can see when the president took office hundreds of thousands of jobs being lost every month. that was the financial crisis and the recession. then it has been slow, very slow incremental gains in jobs since then over the past couple of years. there has been job creation. month after month after month. but some months have not been even robust enough to absorb new entrants into the workforce. that's where it gets political you guys. the question is, has this been good enough, has the president made it better or worse, and could mitt romney do better? that's what everyone will decide on tuesday. >> that's what they'll be fighting about starting today at about 8:30 t
a remarkable, remarkable day. a remarkable decision. i mean, president obama is expected to restart his campaign schedule tomorrow. but mr. romney did not want to wait for that. he started his campaign events today. i'm sorry, are you stuck doing something else? i'll take advantage of that? i'll get back on the campaign trail, i'm heading to florida. apparently you're otherwise occupied. well, i'm not. it's remarkable. it is a remarkable decision to restart his campaign today. but honestly, it is also remarkable that mr. romney never really stopped campaigning in the first place. we reported yesterday on this event that mr. romney held in dayton, ohio, yesterday afternoon. it was the event that had previously been billed as a victory rally in dayton. with the president off the campaign trail entirely to deal with the crisis, the romney campaign realized it would be coarse to keep campaigning. the campaign's communications director put out a statement on monday saying that the romney campaign was going to be canceling all campaign events, "out of sensitivity to the millions of americans
a version of chinese state-directed capitalism by the way of stimulus. mr. obama might squeak by. he has in addition to incumbency and a vestige of likability, a candidate who found his stride late in the campaign. but a second term will mean four years of spent ideas packaged in shopworn rhetoric to be shoved down the throat by a president who has nothing politically to lose. i'm not sure that's fair. would you agree with that? i don't think so. >> i would agree that the president's exhausted intellectually when it comes to what he plans to do for the next our years. i think there's a big question mark, though, also over what mitt romney would do over the next four years. only thing we know for sure is mitt romney's saying he's going to cut taxes and barack obama says he's going to raise taxes and neither one of these -- >> that's the argument in the messaging out on the campaign trail. but when you look at what this president has done -- >> no, no, no, no -- just stop. >> what? >> just stop. i'm talking about the future. you want to talk about the past. if i say the president's intelle
-storm opportunism. citizens in the northeast aren't turning on their tvs if they have electricity to hear mr. obama opine about subways letting. they're tuning in to hear governor chris christie talk about damage to the jersey shore, mayor bloomberg tell them when bus service might resume. and connecticut governor danell malloy to say when the state's highways might reopen. energetic governors and mayors are best equipped to handle disaster relief because they know their cities and neighborhoods far better than the feds ever will, and they know their citizens will hold them accountable. the feds can help with money and perhaps expertise. the larger liberal fallacy here is that effective government requires bigger government. actually, i think everybody needs everybody but, you know, whatever. >> i think what the world needs now is love, sweet love. so are they saying to the president's opportunistic here? >> making a jab at big government when actually this is the one time the government actually is needed. >> as we said, "the new york times" -- >> do you want to take a look and see if there's more
